VMware Cloud on AWS makes it easy to migrate tens to hundreds of applications to the cloud quickly, without an application refactoring or rearchitecting.

In response to this customer interest, we’ve developed whitepapers, blogs, reference guides, licensing info and more to make it easier for you to migrate your customer’s enterprise apps.
The latest release of VMware Cloud on AWS also includes a number of new features in preview to optimize resource management, enable better connectivity to on-premises environments, and improve security within VMware Cloud on AWS deployments.
Intel disclosed a new class of CPU speculative-execution vulnerabilities, known collectively as “L1 Terminal Fault.” This new class of vulnerabilities can occur on current and past Intel processors (from at least 2009 – 2018) when affected Intel microprocessors are speculating beyond an unpermitted data access.
By continuing the speculation in these cases, the affected Intel microprocessors expose a new side-channel for attack, allowing a malicious VM to infer data in the hypervisor and other VMs running on a core.
